What we're about

Welcome to the Data Science LEARNING Group!

A meetup for people who want to LEARN Data Science as a group. Taking online courses together. Reading books together. Etc. Also with some hands-on workshops taught by 'experts'. It's also a place where you can ask others questions and for help.

This is a sister meetup of: http://www.meetup.com/DataScience/ (That's where talks are held.)
